Not an employer who values experience and loyalty of employees, prefers outsiders especially if you're connected to CIO.

Pros

good benefits and profit (EVA) sharing plan, friendly employees, excellent climate and location

Cons

It is a who you know and not what you know culture especially in IT. If you're looking to grow in your career,look elsewhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't think that if someone used to work in State government that they know anything about technology.

    I worked at Ball Corporation

    Pros

    - Compensation
    - Benefits (once you become eligible for pension)

    Cons

    - Not open to change or new ideas. Management acknowledges this and does nothing
    - Promotions are questionable, movement up because they like you or you have been with the company for a long time, instead of skills and experience
    - People who have been with the company for a long time and wants things how it was long ago
    - Silos, no team work with other departments, so bad communication, lots of work to fix something simple, wasted time and effort, complaints of being busy
    - HR manager for packaging, needs to improve her people skills since she is suppose to work with people
    - Management don't follow their own policies and make exceptions
    - They say work life balance but really there is none

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Move on, the company is no longer a small family company
    - Micro managers, trust the people working for you and that they bring new ideas, don't try to make someone exactly like you
    - Really reassess the people in management roles because some of them really should not be doing what they were promoted to

    I worked at Ball Corporation

    Pros

    The pay is decent and a lot of opportunities to work overtime. All of my coworkers were great to deal with.

    Cons

    The shifts were for twelve hours a day and you are on your feet all day. In the summer the plant was hot. Several plant closings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not forget about your front line people. Benefits have gotten worse but this appears to be common throughout many companies.
